Israel in Egpyt

Colorfully chronicling the exodus of the Israelites and the plagues that besieged Egypt, Handel’s biblical oratorio Israel in Egypt showcases the composer’s vivid imagination and inherent understanding of human nature. Presented as the second installment of the Los Angeles Master Chorale’s Hidden Handel project, this vibrant vocal showcase will be enhanced by Syrian Armenian visual artist Kevork Mourad through his compelling blend of drawing, animation, and film that features him creating imagery in real-time from the stage during the performance. Based in New York, Mourad brings a personal perspective to the work’s universal theme of displacement and the entrenched human instinct to return home.
